I welcome any and all advice... I have never smoked before but it is something I have wanted to do for a long time.... I was originally going to turn this into a huge incubator but decided a smoker would be better use for it... I have 30" x 70" clear inside... I have an aluminum rack that goes inside of it as well as the shelves that go into the rack... My first thought is to make it a permanent placement on a concrete pad... Now to get heat in smoke in it... I have the coil out of an stove we took out of the house which I understand can be used for heat... I just have to find out how to install it and the temp control from the stove... Now where do I put my water pan and my wood pan? I am a total newbie starting from scratch with a big aluminum box, trying to figure out where to put what inside of it... Will I need to insulate this thing? I have been reading on here and looking at pictures but still don't understand how it all works.... I don't have anyone close that has a smoker or can help me set this up so I am all on my own here.... We gotta start somewhere, right? Ok, here is what I have to work with, speak up, what is my first step? I do have a full door that goes on the front of it... I thought about cutting the door but someone suggested the mailbox mod????? Is it possible to have the heat and smoke all inside of this unit or do I need to build a wood box on the outside of it and pipe the smoke into it? It still has all the propane hook ups on it but since it has been sitting outside for the last 5 years, I won't even pretend they still work.... It has a thermostat on the front as well as a moisture gadget, but again, I doubt they still work... This came from a bakery that went out of business.... I know I will need to take off all the stuff on the top of the cabinet and cut a hole for the smoke to escape, but that is about all I know I need to do at this point..
